In the words of S.S. Krishna Kaur Khalsa: “Bringing the technology of Kundalini Yoga to the African continent was always an important focus for the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan. Much like he sent people to Europe, South America, and Asia to plant seeds of truth and wisdom, he sent S.S. Pritam Hari Kaur to South Africa over three decades ago . . .
In 2003, I brought 23 Black yoga teachers to Ghana. We toured for three weeks, taught yoga in several cities and villages, embraced our heritage and discovered that there were many who wanted to learn more about Kundalini Yoga. So I promised to come back and conduct Teacher Training, which I did in 2005.”
